DBRcast – Ep6 – Bourbon County Day

DBRcast Logo 5With the shadow of the baby looming, I held onto this episode for a diapered day, and here we are. We wax poetic about our Bourbon County day experiences (or lack thereof), I admit to (briefly) committing a crime, we talk about the two bottles of Rare we got from what was an illegal, incentivized raffle, and we (well me) reflect on the hypocrisy of looking at the BCBS release as a side show of super-hyped bullshit while fervently participating in it.

We finish by discussing the current state of Bourbon County in the hands of the InBev Empire (or is that the First Order now) and bond over Capone’s and the Black Friday event that keeps families together. It’s a magical, bourbon soaked, baby-banked episode of the DBRcast.

Warning: This here podcast contains the salty language, so delicate ears need not apply.

Goose Island – Backyard Rye BCBS Review

Backyard RyeAll You Need to Know

Brewery: Goose Island
Style: Imperial Stout
ABV: 12.7%
Cost:  $30 (22oz)
Glassware: Snifter (served in a water goblet)
Temp: 50°
Availability: Limited
Purchased@: Station Taproom

Quick Take: Quite the fruity beer. The syrupy mouth feel and extreme fruit may be overindulgent for some. It’s rich berry teeters on cloying, making a modest pour thoroughly enjoyable, but a single glass (possibly a cordial glass) is all I would want. This doesn’t strike me as a beer you want to age either as the sugary quality could get out of control. The bottom line is that this is a dessert beer built for sipping, sharing, and pairing and one I’m glad I got the opportunity to try even if I had to overpay for it.
